What happens to pop culture after the fall of human civilization? What about 7 years after the fall? Or even 75 years? Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play, endeavors to find out. When nuclear power plants across the country begin to “go up,” a small group of survivors gather in the woods and begin to recount an episode of The Simpsons. Over the course of the play’s three acts and three-quarters of a century timespan, casual storytelling evolves into theater, theater evolves into ritual, and one Simpsons episode evolves into a myth and legend for a post-apocalyptic world.
***Mr. Burns may not be appropriate for small children. It contains realistic gunfire and depictions of violence.***
